Stolen, once again, from my sister, who rec'vd this from our Mom

Maine's motto -- "The Way Life Should Be" Whomever ever came up w/that saying should be shot, especially after(well not quite over yet--another wet, freezing snow storm due in tomorrow, Wednesday! Yet another saying "it aint over til the fat lady sings")the winter of 2007/2008............tell me why again I am still in Maine & NEVER took up my sister's invite to move to Florida! Maybe we should shot me!


This is by a seventy-four-year-old lady who lives in Acton, Maine.

Why I Love Maine...

It's winter in the state of Maine
And the gentle breezes blow,
Seventy miles an hour,
At fifty-two below.
Oh, how I love the state of Maine
When the snow's up to your butt.
You take a breath of winter air
And your nose, it freezes shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
So I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave the state of Maine...
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to HMR from 3-1-08 Cheering Competition!


CONGRATS to HMR! This competition was held @ the UMO campus & the team even stayed overnight for some bonding & fun! Even Dad & Brother went to watch & support!


Saturday--3-15-08--A Fun Filled Day @ Jokers






Myself, HMR & CMR went to Jokers & played while MCR worked, however, he did manage to get out early & came over & joined the fun festivities!




Ayup, that's my guy!



CMR got lost in the HUGE maze that is there, indoors. The kids normally play tag & hide-n-seek within this maze. That can go on for hours. There is also a menu to order from & there is another room where parents can sit & relax, while all the kids are under somewhat of supervision!

That is Dad & Daughter w/HMR's winnings! You earn point & tickets to turn/trade in when you are all done & you can pick put prizes on the amount of winnings. AS you can see HMR wanted funny teeth! SMILE!!!

Misc Music



**In other video's it shows her doing it all..........she is talented. I like her & Katharine McPhee had done this song as a finalist song & did an awesome job too.





KT TUNSTALL LYRICS

"Black Horse & The Cherry Tree"

[{} contain lines from album's Deluxe Edition (2006). Also the ending of the song is shorter, without ad-libs]

{Two, three, four}

(woo-hoo, woo-hoo) [throughout the whole song]

Well my heart knows me better than I know myself
So I'm gonna let it do all the talking.
I came across a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.

I felt a little fear upon my back
He said "Don't look back, just keep on walking."
When the big black horse said, "Hey lady!" {When the big black horse said, "Look this way"}
Said, "Look this way, will you marry me?" {Said, "Hey, lady, will you marry me?"}

But I said no, no, no, no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me
No, no, no, no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me

And my heart hit a problem, in the early hours,
So I stopped it dead for a beat or two.
But I cut some cord, and I shouldn't have done it,
And it won't forgive me after all these years

So I sent it to a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.
Now it won't come back, 'cause it's oh so happy
And now I've got a hole for the world to see

And it said no, no, no, no-no-no
Said no, no, you're not the one for me
No, no, no, no-no-no-no
Said no, no, you're not the one for me

{Not the one for me}

Said no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
You're not the one for me
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
You're not the one for me

(do, do, do, do)

Well I was
Big black horse and a cherry tree
I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
Big black horse and a cherry tree
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
No, no, no, no
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
No, no, no, no
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
I can't quite get there cause my heart's forsaken me
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
(Big black horse and a cherry tree) I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken

B's latest visit 2-29-08


What a busy weekend I had w/Great Nephew B!!!!

Playing w/Uncle M's 2nd VICTORY NY Giants hat...........

Learning how to rock in Aunti M's childhood rocking chair. Boy he loved this new trick! Didn't even rock out of his seat once!!!

Tubby time is always the best time to wash the bathroom floor! hahahaha

A PREVIOUS VISIT





He watched the balloon go up & down, up & down.....

OH MY!!!
























Where did it go?????

Patches





Ayup, Patches is still here & curious as EVER!!







Even nephew B liked seeing Patches raom around as she catted away!

R.I.P.

It's sad when people you know, become people you knew...And when you can walk right past someone that at one time was a big part of your life...And how you used to be able to talk to them for hours about the little nothings in life...and now you can barely look at them....It's funny how many people have posted this. Guess we're all in the same boat, missing someone.. be honest...if you really miss someone, a friend, a love, or a family member right now...& can't get them off your mind...then repost this titled as R.I.P Within 1 minute. Dont break it

Rain Rain Go Away!


Just please go away..WINTER say bye bye!

So now we were having sleet & freezing rain & then snow overnite. Ok enough! There are places in Maine that have reached over 163" in snow............my cellar this spring will be now my own private swimming pool!
Once again, we are now in a snow, sleet & rain storm. Sleet right now.
Changing over to snow overnite.
More sleet in the am!
